The Candidates Nationals – Damian Drum

Damian Drum

Ballot order: 1

Party: The Nationals

Bio: The Nationals have gone on a full offensive to try and take this seat from the Liberals with Damian Drum, theformer-Fremantle Dockers coach, vacating hisVictorian state parliament position for a tilt at the seat. Like Marty Corboy in Indi, Mr Drum has received support from the big wigs of his party with Darren Chester and Fiona Nash stopping by to make a few announcements. These included $97 million for a new Echuca Bridge, $20 million for a Goulburn Valley Jobs and Investment Package, $20 million in more road related projects.The coalition also pledged $550 million in loans for dairy farmers.

Liberals – Duncan McGauchie. Picture: Facebook

Duncan McGauchie

Ballot order: 4

Party: Liberal

Bio:Duncan McGauchie comes from the western part of the Murray electorate and has no easy task trying to hold the seat for the Liberals. His main electoral policies revolve around water, transport and employment.Just like Sophie Mirabella in Indi he has also been at the coalition announcements for funding made by Nationals ministers as well as a boost with a visit from deputy Liberal leaderJulie Bishop who did a walk-through. Mr McGauchie was a former adviser to theBaillieu government.He has also been doing some interesting things with his social media presence:

Alan John Williams

Labor – Alan Williams. Picture: Facebook

Ballot order: 10

Party: Australian Labor Party

Bio: Labor got about 20 per cent of first preferences in the last election and it’s hard to see them having an impact in this safe coalition seat. The candidate running for the party is Alan Williams who had a go in a Victorian state election back in 1973. His party have given their preferences to the Liberals ahead of the Nationals which could have a big impact on the two-candidate preferred race between Mr McGauchie and Mr Drum.

Ian Christoe

Greens – Ian Christoe. Picture: Facebook

Ballot order: 3

Party: The Greens

Bio:The Greens have gone the other way with their preferences favouring the Nationals over the Liberals. Mooroopna’s Ian Christoe hopes to boost his party’s 4 per cent first preferences from the 2013 election. The Greens’ believe Murray has potential to be a “solar energy powerhouse”. Mr Christoe has stuck to spruiking the benefits of the Greens broader policies for the electorate.

Fern Summer

Independent – Fern Summer. Picture: Facebook

Ballot order: 6

Party: Independent

Bio:Fern Summer took a leave of absence from the Greater Shepparton Council to run in this year’s election. In 2013 she nabbed 986 first preference votes running for the Bullet Train for Australia Party, this year she’s going it alone as an independent.

Securing a bullet train for the Murray is still on her wishlist alongside no cuts to Medicare, a Shepparton bypass, fast tracking marriage equality and banning corporate political donations alongside other progressive policies.

Like other independents in the Murray race she is hoping to capitalise on the disillusionment with the major parties and the success of DIY campaigns as seen in neighbouring Indi.

Jeff Davy

Andrew Bock

Independent – Andrew Bock. Picture: Facebook

He is against fracking andpokies.

Nigel Hicks
